Building understanding amongst fishers

Project 4

Project 4. Are research results well understood by fishers?

Trout population dynamics can be technical and complicated. Presenting the complex information in an easily understood format is vital so that many people can better understand the results of the trout recovery program.

Action: Hold annual seminars/conferences with fishers and local community groups, and prepare user friendly progress reports.

  • How will this help?: Anglers will be invited to attend annual seminars/conferences to hear results of the trout response plan and provide feedback on each project. This will enable anglers to gain a better understanding of the factors at play in managing fisheries, and provide fisheries managers first hand feedback on angler observations. The seminars will enable better communication and a more informed debate between all, to ensure better outcomes for the fishery.
